I was born in Portpatrick and returned after college and some work experience to set up a pottery workshop with my partner, which we ran for about 10 years. This developed into a a retail craft shop, selling quality craft goods from around the world. I developed the Lighthouse apartment from a store office and workshop just a few yards from my current shop and flat, so am available on site if any problems occur or information is required. Obviously I know Dumfries and Galloway intimately and can offer information and knowledge of the area to our guests.

CHRISTINE CAMPBELL purchased this apartment in 1994

Why CHRISTINE CAMPBELL chose Stranraer

I built this property in 1993 as part of my business. I love the area and have lived here virtually for the whole of my working life. It is a quiet and peaceful part of Scotland and not yet fully appreciated. It has much to offer and very beautiful.

Portpatrick is ideal for walking, golfing as well as a centre for wider reaching sightseeing tours - including Belfast (Titanic), the Galloway hills and world famous gardens, historic castles and our local distillery.

What makes this apartment unique

Although in the centre of The village it is a quiet location with stunning views and very comfortable.

Bed linen,towels,electricity,fuel for the wood burning stove and unlimited WI-Fi are provided in the price.

First class apartment, and wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

You wont find a better apartment in Portpatrick nor more friendly owners. Booking through Owners direct though is a nightmare....We booked and the owners confirmed our booking, and stated they did not want a deposit until we arrived. Owners direct issued us an ultimatum however, Either we paid £100 or we would lose the booking. We contacted the owner, who confirmed she had the accommodation was reserved, and did not want a deposit. We contacted Owners Direct with this info. They said they would reply within three days, but again said if I did not pay £100 by the following morning, I would lose the booking. I paid, under duress. As holiday time approached Owners Direct contacted me to say I had paid my £48 booking fee, plus £100 deposit, the balance being due on arrival. On arrival the owners knew nothing about me having paid £100, and asked if it had been taken from my account. I could not confirm that there and then, so they very kindly said pay nothing more till you get home to check your account. When I got home, I checked my Owners Direct account which confirmed I had paid £100 deposit, but when I checked my bank account, they had not taken the sum asked for. Owners Direct are a pain in the neck, and I would never book through them again. The owners of this apartment are very fine people, and the apartment is first class, we will return there, but NOT via Owners Direct!

A beautiful 5* place

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at the Lighthouse Apartment. Was beautiful inside and had everything we needed. I was there with my two children but would be a real gem for a romantic getaway. I would definitely book again.

Great house, great location

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for 3 nights in July 2017. The house is very nice, all furniture and decorations are very nice, all very top quality and beautiful mirrors, clocks etc. The view over the harbour and bay is beautiful, the upstairs is very cosy and you can imagine relaxing here and enjoying the view. Portpatrick is a great place to visit, lots of pubs and restaurants close by. Campbell's restaurant is great and the Lighthouse pottery sell lots of nice jewellery and trinkets.

A small down side, the bedroom is downstairs and the bathroom is upstairs, also the wardrobe space is upstairs but these little quirks add to to character of the place.

We would definitely go back.

Great Apartment With Great Views

  • 5 of 5

An ideal let for a couple but there is an additonal bed for two more if needed. Has all the crockery you will need along with some basic condiments to start you off. The location does not disappoint - the view from the upstairs lounge is one I could spend many hours looking at. Property is clean and in good order and the owners close by if you need them. Comfortable and quirky - I loved it.

The village is friendly and people will pass the time of day with you. Visited The Port Pantry for light lunch; the Harbour House does a good breakfast and The Crown is very friendly.
